Owl Poetry & Prose

The Glass Shell

They both stayed encased in this fragile glass shell

Both damaged, and damaging but

cocooned by the false serenity the shell offered

They both convinced themselves that they could remain

Happy or what happiness a glass shell can offer

Never stopping to consider the nature of their cocoon

The world in general and their own destructive selves

They remain anchored to a glass shell

Peering out at the world encased in a fishbowl of fantasies

Fairy tales and happily ever afters

Suspended in mid air by Fate’s mischievous hands

Till one day when it will be flung down and dashed

To test the age old test of time – endurance, perseverance, trust & love

Not things a glass shell can encompass

Fate is swinging her pendulum with a smile

They will remain comfortably fooled, but only for a while
